Printmaking Quotes

I was on the road for a couple of days with our move, and I came to my computer to find over 90 messages (daily normal around 10)! The Mid America Print Council list serv had sent me tons of quotes about printmaking. Thank goodness Nichole Geary has collected them in her blog to share to the world. Here are some of my faves:

"Printmaking is fun because it takes a perfectly simple process like drawing and makes it as complicated and error prone as possible."
- George Bodmer submitted by Julian Cox

"Printmaking, like sex, is not solely about reproduction."
submitted by Curtis Readel, Christopher Cannon, and Jeremy Cody.

"If you can't do it in black and white, all the color in the world is not going to help."
- Robert Malone, Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville submitted by Amy Schmierbach

"Inspiration is for amateurs! The rest of us get to work!"
- Chuck Close, SGC Keynote Address, Boston, MA 2004 submitted by Syd Cross and Dusty Herbig

"The great thing about printmaking is that it brings the element of sport into artmaking."
- unknown submitted by Matt Rebholz

Nichole has a pretty cool blog otherwise too, worth checking it out! Thanks Nichole for putting this together.
